Further Information

How will changing the prerequisite requirement for Biochemistry 2201 affect you?
• Normally Chemistry 2400 would need to be completed prior to registering for Biochemistry 2201 but in Fall 2022 you can request to be signed into Biochemistry 2201 while doing Chemistry 2400 at the same time. If you wish to do this please contact bcadvice@mun.ca with your request. (Approval will be on an individual basis, based on the instructor’s determination of the likelihood of each student’s ability to be successful in taking two challenging courses simultaneously.)
• This should increase flexibility in scheduling your courses.

How will the absence of Biochemistry 4211 affect you?
• Students who were planning on doing Biochemistry 4211 in the Fall should do Biochemistry 4210 (Biochemical Research Techniques I) instead.


How will the offering of Biochemistry 4232 in Winter affect you?
• This course will count as a specified biochemistry elective in all Biochemistry and Biochemistry(Nutrition) programs.

Course Description: This course will examine the structure and function of cellular enzymes and receptors. The molecular basis of enzyme-catalyzed reactions and receptor-driven signalling, as well as the equations and constants used to describe these processes, will be discussed in detail. The concept of enzymes and receptors as pharmaceutical targets will be highlighted with specific examples. (Biochemistry 3105 prerequisite).

How will the offering of Biochemistry 4242 in Spring 2023 affect you?

Students considering this course should contact one of the course instructors in the fall or early winter to express their interest.  This will aid the instructors in planning.

• This course can count as a specified biochemistry elective in Biochemistry(Nutrition) programs, Biochemistry Major and Honours programs and Biochemistry (Nutrition) and Psychology (Behavioural Neuroscience) Joint Honours program.
Course Description: This course will be offered at Memorial’s Harlow campus in the UK. It begins as an intensive two weeks of field trips to various sites near Harlow, including nutrition and food research institutes and food production facilities, to address the themes Farm to Fork Food Systems; Food, Nutrition and Health; and Modern Nutrition Research. (Biochemistry 2600 prerequisite). Instructors: R. Bertolo (rbertolo@mun.ca), J. Brunton (jbrunton@mun.ca) and S. Harding (sharding@mun.ca)
